The three-track EP features cuts from Dub Striker, Conor C and S.P.C

Gents & Dandy's come up with the deep house goods once again on this three-track various artists EP.

Batting first are French duo Dub Striker with What's Up Boz, a very trad-style deep houser with echoes of that late 90s/early 00s west coast sound in its funky bassline, disco handclaps and cut-up garage vox. Next up to the plate is Irish producer Conor C, whose Show You takes us on an even deeper, more late-night ride; again there's a sultry, garage-y feel overall, but counterpointed here by some analogue-sounding synth bleeps. And then completing the package we have Late Night, which comes from Russian "deep house, disco, ambient, dubby, chill project" S.P.C, aka Igor O Vaslov, and which is another dreamy, meandering cut that, like Show You before it, garnishes its laidback deep house vibes with a techy, acid-y twist.

The standout for yours truly here is What's Up Boz, but this is another strong EP all round from this most reliable of deep house labels.
